I like George Clooney. I like him quite a lot, actually, but his nominated films always seem to suck. "The Descendants" was no different. And not just because it was a downer. I can handle a sad movie. I even like them (like "Seven Pounds"), but this was a terrible flick. Sid getting punched in the face was the lone highlight.
"Midnight in Paris" is crap. Shame on you, Woody Allen, for taking several of my favorites actors (Marion Cotillard, Adrien Brody, & Owen Wilson) and making them participate in this ridiculous film. This movie is so full of itself I can't stand it. Absolutely terrible script. Embarrassing, really.
